A Met Office spokesperson said: "Further snow showers, perhaps merging into a longer spell of snow, are likely to cause further disruption on Tuesday.

"During the day, an area of more organised rain, sleet and snow is likely to move east with further showers following.

"There is still some uncertainty in the track of more prolonged snow, and it is possible that at lower elevations across Wales and northern England, this could turn to rain for a time.
